Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators
I do not think my first attempt to help you went through, if this is a duplicate response I am sorry. It sounds like your condenser is overheating, this could be due to the coils being very dirty or the fan that keeps them cool is not running. The motor you hear on top is most likely the compressor that does the cooling. Remove the grille on top and look at the coils (similar to a radiator in a car but smaller) there will be a fan behind them that will (should) be turning. If the coils are dirty use a vacuum and brush if you have one to clean very thoroughly. I have put together some instructions on how to do this but it is for bottom compressor models, but it might help, I have attached the link to the bottom of this reply.
If the motor is not running you can see if something is caught in the blades stopping it, if it is clear and not running you will need a new condenser fan motor.
I hope this helps, let me know if you have questions.
